I am new here, and I am in the process of building my first ROV using Ions hydrodynamic prototype. I have a huge interest in this project not just because I love building things, but because I can see it being usefull as a tool in my line of work (marine biologist).
I was thinking, it would be nice to be able to control the ROV while scuba diving along side it, and I remembered Of a TED talks on the sixth sense software, and I was thinking of finding a way to adapt the program to control the ROV.
If this could be done, a user would be able to command the ROV by using the camera and it would remove the use for the tether. Of course, this would require the ROV to be computerized and probably quite a handful more complications.
I am going to work on this project over the summer (if I could get my computer expert friends in on it), but I wanted to know what you guys thought about it.
